Very low to no prep required! Just print and go! Optionally, you could copy back to back with another assignment for early finishers and/or additional skill work.
This 207 page download includes 199 quick write prompts and one blank master quick write for writing in your own prompts.
I began using quick writes with my fourth grade students last year during the second semester and saw a great increase in my students’ writing. After seeing how helpful there were, I decided to create a year’s worth (plus a few bonus pages) of quick writes and share them with you! I used my quick writes as a warm up or morning work assignment before my students started independent reading, independent of my writing block. However, there are so many uses for these quick writes, I know you’ll find the just “write” fit for you and your students!
Each page has a place for a name, date, and score at the top, followed by a prompt in bold type, 2 sentences of directions, several writing lines, and rubric for scoring. I began having my students self-score their own writing before turning it in, which also helped increase their writing skills.
